Paleoclimate research is conducted in a variety of ways. From the extraction of ice cores at the poles to the study of tree rings, they can produce useful information about past climatic conditions. The resolution of these studies is of great importance in archaeological and historical analysis. Also, conducting some interdisciplinary studies such as archaeobotany, zooarchaeology and environmental sedimentology in archaeological sites is complementary to paleoclimate research. The information obtained by such studies, together with absolute datings, is able to show climatic events (on a century scale) and their environmental effects.
